Saffron and Marigold flower quilt...

Part 1.
I am excited to show you the first saffron flower I completed. I did quite a lot of stitching on the weekend to to finish the block.

*Taking photos different times of the day; same fabric in lighter shade above.

These blocks will measure approximately 22x22 inches. I am hoping to add more details after when I add the backing.


Bit of the the marigold flower too.

Thank you for taking time to stop by,

Saffron flower ...

 Saree Quilt


I hope you will not get tired seeing another saree quilt of mine. I could not resist when I came across this cotton saree at the thrift store couple of months ago, for $4.99. I love the colour, and as soon as I saw, I knew I would want to make quilt.


The golden colour of the material inspired me to start with a saffron flower, and while sketching patterns I also thought about adding a marigold flower.


For the saffron flower, I am using folded bias tape cut out from a blue voile, and as for the marigold flower, I still have not decided how it should be done.

---------------------


I have made some progress on the ripple pattern as well.


Thank you for coming by today,

Elephants, Peacocks and Paisley

bohemian saree quilt ....

After many thousands of stitches by hand, finally my bohemian quilt is done. Even though the weather was rather gloomy today, I could not wait, but wanted to take some pictures to post.



So, what you do think of it? I don't know if I should have done more work on each block. 



 There are sixteen blocks in all,




and in one of the blocks I stitched a pattern instead of an applique.


What a feeling it was to do the last stitch. 

I wanted to edit the pictures to a collage but my computer hard drive is crashed and, I am using an old laptop which is not helping me a lot.

I am already thinking about the next saree project. 

Thank you for stopping by today,
